Wunmi, the wife of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, popularly known as Mohbad, has accused her father-in-law, Mr Aloba of threatening to kill her and her eight-month-old son, Liam through a Nigerian content creator, Martin Vincent Otse, popularly known as VeryDarkMan and others based in South Africa and Nigeria.
Speaking exclusively with SaharaReporters, Wunmi said Mohbad’s father accused her of being responsible for her husband’s death and that he vowed to take her and her son out of the way to gain full access to Mohbad’s properties.
She lamented that she had been receiving calls from VeryDarkMan and a young man based in South Africa she identified as Hayat, telling her where she lived to prove that they could hurt her if they wanted.
She alleged that they had also threatened that they would never rest until they killed her and her son because she was blocking her father-in-law from gaining access to Mohbad’s properties.
Wunmi also accused her father-in-law of pushing to get her mother-in-law to be part of the conspiracy accusing her of poisoning Mohbad.
She said, “My father-in-law went to social media to say that I killed my husband. The reason he said that was because he didn’t want anything that belonged to my husband to be given to my son. He wants to have access to everything.
“He has called my husband’s legal team and everybody else possible but they told him it will be done in a proper legal way but he never wanted it to be so. That is why he went to the media to spoil my name.
“He has accused me of adding a poisonous substance to my husband’s food. He said it in court and also told the media that. He never knew it was my brother-in-law who prepared my husband’s last noodles. He thought I was the one. He said to the media that I used to add a poisonous substance to my husband’s food when he was alive.
“When he got to know that it was my brother-in-law, Adurah who prepared the noodles my husband ate before he died, he called my mother-in-law and told her that they should insist that I prepared the noodles my husband ate before he died and not my brother-in-law. He asked my brother-in-law to join him in accusing me of killing my husband but my mother-in-law and brother-in-law refused to be part of it.”
Speaking further, Wunmi said, “He has been on social media saying that I sleep around with different men. A VeryDarkMan has also been on the media defaming me and my son. He has been telling people that my son is a bastard and that Sam Larry, who was among the people who bullied my husband, is responsible for my child.
“There is also a guy in South Africa called Hayat, who did a video a few days ago, saying that my son would die before he turns a year old and that he would make sure he finds me and kills me. He said he would not rest if he does not kill me.
“He said it was because of my son that my husband was killed. There has been a lot of cyberbullying. There are many.”
When asked if she ever had any issues with her husband over the child while he was alive, she said no and added that when they found out the child’s sex before his birth, Mohbad tattooed the son’s name on his body.
She said it was her father-in-law who pressured her and Mohbad into having a child as early as they did.
“What the media do not know is that my father-in-law is doing all this because he wants money and he wants access to everything that belongs to my husband. He does not like the fact that there is Liam in the picture who is there as my husband’s son,” she said.
Mohbad’s wife said she had reported the actions of her father-in-law to her husband’s lawyers several times but they advised her to ignore him.
She said the matter degenerated into threats against her and her son, “I had to call him and tell him that if anything happens to my son, “if they do not kill me, they will not leave me alone”.
They said “that I’m the one hindering my father-in-law from getting everything that belongs to his son. That either my son or myself will die with my husband, if not, they would not rest. That was the second day the person threatened that my son would die before he clocks a year old,” she said.
However, when contacted for comments, Aloba, Mohbad’s father, denied all the allegations made against him by Wunmi.
“In this situation with what is happening on the internet now, I’m not ready to answer any question. The way I’m looking at the internet now, I only want people to help me fight for justice for my son.
“A lot of allegations that she made are not from me. If she thinks so, that is for her but to me, somebody who does not even have money to eat, how can he get money to give bloggers? It sounds somehow, and I will never do such a thing,” he said.
He said that had not “heard most of these allegations because I’m not on social media”.
“The only one I heard was when she cursed me and I had to throw the message out but after that one, listening to the media used to give me a lot of issues and I had to stop for now,” he said.
When asked if he tried to push his wife to be part of the conspiracy against Wunmi and accuse her of poisoning her husband, he said he had heard about the allegation for the first time from our reporter.
According to Aloba, some bloggers and other individuals are using his son’s case to make money.
He added that the case was already in court and he would prefer to his lawyers.
When asked if he was aware that the lives of his daughter-in-law and grandson were being threatened by some persons who allegedly claimed they were fighting for him, Aloba denied knowledge of any threat against them.
He said, “No, no, no, I’m not aware. We are not living together, so I can’t know what is going on with them.”
